there and expand its influence in gaza. i think similar situation may emerge in syria which certainly will be a loss for the iranians if assad falls. i think their relationship with the regime is not just limited to assad. it's also in the security apparatus as well as the fact that even if it becomes a loss to iranians it doesn't automatically translate to a win for everyone else. it's most likely syria will turn into yet another one of the regions that will become a proxy for a major powers to fight each other rather than squarely falling into the capital deals. >> yes? >> henri, you mentioned the crisis that erupted between washington and over turkey's deal with iran on the nuclear issue, particularly the uranium enrichment deal they helped broker with brazil. it seems like when you look at the issue of turkey and the u.s., aside from the obama-erdogan chemistry, turkey stepping away from the iran issue. these being a very vocal advocate for iran. but you mentioned you see sort of things get harder for iran possibly then coming back to turkey. and i'm wondering, what are the condit
